Uptake Update 3, 10.U.3 TAS Demonstration Site

Tasmania has had a sporadic history of small-scale fox incursions since 1864 but it is
only since 2001 that hard evidence of fox presence has been found on a regular basis.
Several hundred credible sighting reports have been lodged since 2001. Other evidence
includes road-kill carcasses, confirmed tracks, and fox grooming hairs found in a scat. A scat collected in February 2005, five scats collected in 2006, and blood found near a chicken coop in 2006 tested positive for fox DNA providing compelling evidence that
foxes are present in Tasmania.
